    The Le Castellet site, a small rocky plateau, was occupied by an oppidum in the 4th century BC. It was abandoned two centuries later, but redeveloped in the 12th century. Within the château walls was a high tower, which no longer exists, as well as a church dedicated to Saint Mary. Only the apse remains standing: it is semi-domed and supported by eight ribs resting on corbels. These remains are currently located on the land of a private Mas and are therefore inaccessible to the public.

    The bottle procession takes place in Saint Marcellin Chapel on 1 June every year. On this day, all male residents of Boulbon go to the Chapel carrying a bottle of wine. After the Provençal service, the bottles are blessed. Each participant can then have a sip of wine, while the village police officer distributes glasses to the clergy and the authorities. The wine blessed in the name of the Saint is believed to have beneficial effects against fevers and stomach aches.

    At the 'Pas de Bouquet' (Saint Victor district), on the edge of Boulbon, there was an old Gallo-Roman 'villa', where remains of pottery, mosaics, urns, hearth cavities and statuettes have been found. Saint Victor is on the old road which led from Tarascon to Avignon, along the west of the hill. The construction of this Romanesque chapel dates back to the end of the 9th century. The first official Act to mention it came from the Saint Agricol d'Avignon Chapter in 1155.

    This was originally known as the Chapelle des Pucelles or the Chapelle des Vierges. This chapel has, of course, paid the traditional homage to time and undergone a series of transformations which have made it even more interesting. Don't miss the relatively rudimentary bas-relief tympanum representing the theme of Adam and Eve, the serpent and the tree of life. Remarkably, the tree of life is represented by a fig tree.

    Located at the very place where the first residence in Noves was built, it was originally a simple hermitage for Observantine monks. The chapel nave, adjacent to the hermitage, was built in 1630 and extended in 1722 in accordance with the wishes of the inhabitants of Noves during the great Plague of 1720-1721. A pilgrimage linked to this wish still takes place today (first Saturday in September). The apse was built in 1832, followed by the narthex in the 19th century. The inside of the chapel can only be visited on Heritage Days.

    La Persévérance Chapel is actually the remains of a house founded in 1677 to take in 'women and girls of ill repute'. Entrusted to the care of the sisters of Notre Dame du Refuge, the establishment was a moral and financial failure and was forced to close by a Royal order. In 1803, the chapel was attached to the catechism of perseverance, i.e. the more advanced teaching that children follow once they have received their first solemn communion, and took its name from this. It currently houses contemporary art exhibitions. Architectural description:

    This is a Romanesque chapel originally dedicated to Saint Peter. In the 12th century, it became Notre Dame de l'Assomption and at the same time was given to the Arles Chapter. The site of Lansac, a tiny hamlet south of Tarascon, has been inhabited since Roman times, when the residents fled Ernaginum (now Saint Gabriel), where they had originally settled but which was pillaged by the Visigoths.
